Trusting in an unseen power is so anti-culture, that even Christians get sucked into the lie that God “could” do that super amazing thing you are begging Him to do, but He probably won’t. Six months ago you could NOT have convinced me that we would sell all we own including our car and house, quit our jobs and oh I don’t know…go to New Zealand to tell people about Jesus. My first response would be right! now go tell my husband! However here we are. We are scared and nervous and excited! We are trusting that He will provide the rest. A lot of people are asking well what if you don’t get the money, you get over there and then what? Well we are praying and trusting He will come through. He has already brough in like 17,000 dollars! That’s crazy!!! Only Jesus Himself could do that! Our other answer is we need to have the first three months up front in cash…about 5300 more. That is the long and short of it. He sees what we are about to do. We are going to the airport and getting on that plane. Again this is radical faith that He has so clearly asked us to have. Our stomach’s are in constant knots, we cannot think of anything else. I search the bible and all I can find is one of two things. People that have radical faith who go on to accomplish great things in the world, and two, people who doubt and give in before the break thru. Id rather be obedient and fail than be disobedient and “succeed”.
We leave thursday 3am….FUN! We will be in LAX for a 11 hour layover. So…we are asking to Please be praying for us. That it will be a super smooth operation and that we can have the right mindset filled with His peace. Then goes the 19 hour flight. Please pray that the boys will do well and a supernatural peace will be over them as well. We are thinking we will be playing hide and seek, capture the flag and anything else you can think about in that giant airport!!
We just need to feel His presence in this all. Thank you again…all of you who have given and prayed. This could not be done without your support. We are so humbled and blessed!
Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand.
His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7
